Kellie Wheatley's curator insight, May 9, 9:25 PM

A great site for outlining the implementation of technology in the classroom. It outlines the most effective integration methods and appropriate situations for certain digital formats and platforms. 

It details the need for personalised learning through flexibility, progression and individuality, all of which are based off modern learning methods. In specific regards to technology, this article explains:

- virtual classrooms

- audio and video integration

- data interpreting

- student mentoring

- transitioning from consumers to producers (more hands-on)

- truth vs untruth

- social environments of learning (an online presence)

- learning camps (a place to find individuality)

- transitioning through schools (students, environments and        teachers)


These ideas are important to consider, particularly for pre-service teachers like myself. These are key aspects to students being able to move forward in regards to technology, and this publication outlines all of that. The aspects which I found most beneficial, and that I could relate to were the transitioning from consumers to producers and teaching through transitions of the schooling system. Both of these promote a more hands-on classroom with students being able to apply their skills, while being taught and supported by their teacher.

Darren Schmidt's comment, May 14, 8:42 AM
Are these trends, and not technologies?
Terry Smith's curator insight, June 9, 5:32 PM
I re-scooped this article specifically because it deals with how technology has influenced personalized learning particularly in online environments.  The article goes through the various ways that technology is reshaping, adapting and enhancing how students learn.

Why I Teach Online

Why I Teach Online | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Having the option to work remotely and asynchronously was a godsend. I figured my online students would have no idea if I were moderating online discussions or grading papers while sitting next to a spouse hooked up to an Oxaliplatin IV. During this family crisis, I knew I would miss being in the same room with students, and the instantaneous give-and-take of a physical classroom. I only ever envisioned online teaching as a short-term reassignment.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

My online career allows me to be a primary caregiver for my loved one. This aspect of the work wasn't what I'd anticipated. In the end it was a God send.
